My gggrandfather was George W. Hicks, born in 1825, probably in New York State (according to a census return). He married Abigail Medbery Chaffee on 21 January 1849. She was the daughter of John Chaffee and Fanny Medbery. They had 5 children of which I am aware: Willard C. Hicks (b. 1849, d.1864); George Albert Hicks, my ggrandfather (b. 8 March 1851, d. 9 August 1922); Mary F. Hicks (b. 1855, d. June 1884); Arthur E. Hicks (b. 1867, d. 1954); and Adelaide O. Hicks (b. 1853). George and Abigail are buried in Warren Center, Pennsylvania. I expect they were married there, they certainly farmed there, and they appear in in number of census listings. George's ancestry is a total blank for me at present. Has any Chaffee family historian come across him before, please? Any details would be gratefully received.
